They lost me at "relaxed sporty riding position" when they flashed this pic for a micro-second - I can imagine the arms getting wiped out pretty quick even alone much less with a passenger on your back. Yet still I want one...

PaiN, I'm glad you put "tourer" in quotes. I can no more assume that humping a watermelon riding position than fly. Maybe a 19 year old can, but can they afford it and the insurance premiums that bike will demand.

Only if they have 'daddy money', but they would need that to afford the bike in the first place.

These choices and everything in between ....honestly, if my XC blew up and I had to find a replacement tomorrow, I don't think I could find one on that could do all it does the way it does....
